- Cast Resin replica of the seeds of Daemonorops, which are harvested for the production of Buddhist prayer beads. Daemonorops is a genus of rattan palms found primarily in Southeastern Asia. Rattan seeds are sometimes called 'Moon and Stars' by Tibetans, and variously called 'lotus root', 'lotus seed' and 'linden nut' in many areas. The bead itself is hard and dense, ivory coloured (which gradually turns a deep golden brown with long use), and has small holes (moons) and tiny black dots (stars) covering its surface.
